Candidate Kevin Sibley talks Peoria At-large bid, minimum wage and crime reduction

Local News

Political newcomer Kevin Sibley cites “frustration” as the reason he decided to run for an at-large seat on Peoria city council.

The Peoria native’s issues with the current state of the city include infrastructure needs and policies he alleges are harmful to job creation and local businesses.

Sibley says the city needs more “living wage jobs” and recommends promoting trades in schools and the community.

However, he has “mixed emotions” on increasing minimum wage because he believes it could have a negative impact on local business.

Watch and hear Sibley’s full interview with Eugene Daniel on crime reduction, budget and recreational marijuana.
